50K Runners Today In The NYC Marathon – The Bronx Welcomes You!

on

nyc-marathon-logoLatino Sports congratulates the over 50 thousand runners from around the world and from all ages and genders that will participate in todays premier New York City sports event.

As usual, the Marathon 26 mile run through the city will take it through many of the diverse areas of our city and as such will be running through the South Bronx. The Bronx has the shortest course in the 26 mile run. They come in through the Willis Avenue Bridge and the run through approximately 8 blocks to leave again through the Third Avenue Bridge.

Latino Sports in cooperation with the South Bronx Community Association (SBCA) and VIP Record Pool organize a music stand at 137th & Alexander. Our music stand plays the music that the Bronx is known for: Salsa & Hip Hop. The reason is that the Bronx is the 20-mile run and it’s there where many runners “hit the wall.” There they will need motivation to continue and to be cheered on. What better way to do it through music and letting them know that though our borough had the shortest distance, they will remember us because of our music.

We want to thank: Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center, Giovanni’s Restaurant, BronxNet and the volunteers from Latino Sports, VIP Record Pool and SBCA for helping to motivate the runners and showing demonstrating Bronx hospitality
